The girls went on two tours in 2017 - the ‘Summer Shout Out Tour’ and the ‘Glory Days Tour’ - and celebrated with a new video for 'Nothing Else Matters', which gives fans a peek at what a Little Mix tour is all about.
Little Mix had several support acts for their various shows in 2017 including The Vamps, Lina Makhul and Welsh X Factor contestant Lloyd Macey.
UPDATE: But their 2018 concerts will be opened by fellow 'The X Factor' alumni Rak-Su.
Boy band Rak-Su won the 2016 talent competition and went on to join 'The X Factor Tour'. This will be their first tour as a support act for a big name artist.
Little Mix’s latest album ‘Glory Days’
The ‘Wings’ hitmakers are touring to promote their latest album ‘Glory Days’, which reached the number one spot in both the UK and Ireland.
The album is jointly the longest-running UK number one album by a girl group alongside Destiny’s Child’s ‘Survivor’. The Guardian called the album “chart pop perfection”.
The first single from the girl group’s fourth studio album was ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ which scored them their fourth UK number one single. It went on to win British Single of the Year at the Brit Awards.
The next track to be released ahead of the album launch was ‘Touch’. The song made it into the UK top ten, making two-for-two hit singles for the band.
Little Mix later released ‘No More Sad Songs’ as the third single, which featured Machine Gun Kelly.
The fourth official single was ‘Power’, featuring British grime star Stormzy. The track was Little Mix’s 11th UK top ten hit.
Little Mix followed up with three promotional singles: ‘You Gotta Not’, ‘F.U.’ and ‘Nothing Else Matters’... and two further singles ‘Nobody Like You’ and ‘Down & Dirty’.
A re-issue of the album ‘Glory Days: The Platinum Edition’ was released in November, which includes remixes and acoustic versions of their hit singles, as well as new tracks.
UPDATE: Yep. Little Mix are already hard at work on their fifth studio album.
The news initially came from singer/songwriter Raye, who confirmed she had been working on the group's new record while talking to Daily Star about equality for women in the music industry.
More new music from the girls suggests they won't stop after the epic 75-date tour they've been on, meaning a Little Mix 2019 tour is likely.
Later, Leigh Anne confirmed Little Mix will start writing the new album in March to be released later this year before the Little Mix tour 2019.
